Bronwyn Thompson

Sadly, Down Syndrome NSW member Bronwyn Thompson passed away on Sunday night after a sudden illness. Bronwyn was loving grandmother to young Flynn Edwards (4), and mother to DSNSW vice-president Hannah Edwards.

In the short time in which she has been involved with Down Syndrome NSW, Bronwyn has made a big impact.

With her husband Geoff, their Team MOG entry in the TUFF TRUCK challenge (2009 – 2011) has raised close to $20,000 in just 3 years and gained great local publicity for Down Syndrome NSW on the north coast.

As well as being a dedicated fundraiser, Bronwyn has worked hard in her gentle and unassuming way to improve understanding and acceptance of people with Down syndrome in her community – and her grandson Flynn has been a wonderful ambassador.

Bronwyn and Geoff generously hosted the UP!Club on their property near Taree last year, and many UP!Clubbers will have fond memories of Bronwyn’s warm hospitality.

Bronwyn will be a sadly missed member of the Down Syndrome NSW family. Bronwyn’s funeral will be held this Friday in Taree.
